THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is attempting to stage a come-back after finding interim support while S&P 500 technical positioning continues to warn of weakness ahead.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 9933, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, hinting a move higher is ahead. Initial resistance lines up at 9983, the underside of a rising channel set from mid-September, with a break above that targeting the November 21 close at 10046. Alternatively, a drop below 9933 initially exposes a minor falling channel bottom at 9909.
